Nailed shoulders today :)
I've noticed on here and on Instagram that most people post in pounds, so I thought I would post both so people have an idea of what I'm lifting :)

One arm overhead press/circus press
25Kg x 5 reps each arm (55lbs)
25Kg x 5 reps each arm (55lbs)
32.5kg x 5 reps each arm (72lbs)
32.5Kg x 5 reps with right arm (72lbs)
32.5Kg x 4 reps with left arm (72lbs)

Seated overhead press- weight is both dumbbells combined
20Kg (44lbs) x 10 reps
30Kg (66lbs) x 10 reps
45Kg (99lbs) x 10 reps

Side raises - weight is per dumbbell and reps are per arm
5Kg (11lbs) x 12 reps
5Kg (11lbs) x 12 reps
12.5Kg (27.5lbs) x 12 reps
12.5Kg (27.5lbs) x 10 reps
Drop set to 5Kg (11lbs) x 12 reps

Didn't do tricep kickbacks today!

Haha I've got protective mats matey ;)

Right, I sat down yesterday, had a read through 5/3/1 I have on PDF (thanks Jim) and it's got me stoked to train! I'm borrowing my dad's van on Wednesday after work to move all my equipment (squat stands, barbell, big weight plates, belt, chalk) to my new house!
My training will look a bit different, with heavy deads and squats (il be using a similar training style to 5/3/1 with them) il also do the occasional barbell ohp and bench, depending on time, lastly I'll be doing hill sprints as soon as I find a decent hill around here haha! Il still do dumbbell bench/ohp and circus presses, with the squats stand il be able to do pull-ups on the barbell and dips on the safety catches! So il have more exercises at my disposal.
I'll likely start all of this Thursday or at the weekend, for now I'll do some light dumbbell training and body weight exercises to save myself for super heavy deads!
Last chance for someone to talk me out of deadlifting and squatting on the same day!

Look forward to seeing how you go with the 5/3/1, it's pretty foolproof and the gains should come slow and steady. You just have to stick to the programme and work hard, same as all of them I guess.

You have a good weekend? Did it stop raining?

Yeah I did it before for about 4 mesocycles and enjoyed it, I won't be following it properly though just borrowing the layout for my squats amd deadlifts :p
Fuck the rain man I'm training on Wednesday regardless haha :)

Those are some pretty big numbers up there for the shoulder work, making me feel like a little girl! Glad you had a solid weekend mate, and that you're getting your gear back in action. I wish I had some (or all) of the equipment you've got - especially the barbell!

In hindsight it wasn't a smart investment (all my equipment) I would have to use it all for years before I made the money back that I would have spent on the gym haha, but I love having it! Will have to buy £80-£100 worth of plates providing I increase my deadlifts as much as I would like ;) the Olympic barbell and weights cost me about £200 ish the stands were about £80 and my bench was £50 haha.. All of which were on big sales!

Hey Ross - You could rig up a tarp or some other waterproof sheeting over your patio, provided your neighbors don't mind the look of it. That would keep you out of the rain and provide some shade for the summer so your bar doesn't get super hot from sitting in the sun. Your bar is still likely to rust pretty quickly though, given your climate. If your plates are coated or painted they should be OK until they get scratched up.

If you go back and edit the first post in the thread you can change the subject.

I could do mate, but it'll only be out when I'm training, the rest of the time it'll be in my garden shed or utility room in the house so as long as I give it a towel dry after use if it rains I think il be fine :)
Thanks man!
